Huws Gray Alliance: Bangor look to close gap at top

The Huws Gray Alliance returns after a two week break of league action due to Welsh Cup and international fixtures.

However, there is a whole host of action this weekend as Bangor City try to make ground on title favourites Airbus, starting this weekend against Prestatyn Town.

Bangor City vs Prestatyn Town

Prestatyn have been a bogey team for the Citizens in the past but Bangor City have the advantage going into this game after beating the visitors in the League Cup earlier this season.

Both teams come into this game on the back of winning their least game in the Welsh Cup, and Prestatyn have been rejuvinated by the return of Neil Gibson as manager and a host of former players, including Ben Maher this week.

But, Bangor will be looking to maintain their recent run of form.

Denbigh Town vs Holyhead

It’s a big game at the bottom of the table; this season hasn’t gone to plan for both teams, but they will identify this clash as a chance to pick up some much needed points.

Last time out Denbigh beat Buckley in the Welsh Cup and Holyhead drew to Penrhyncoch in the league, and both will be hoping to build on that in this fixture.

Flint vs Buckley

It’s a Flintshire derby on Friday Night as both teams come into this game both sitting in the top six.

Flint have had a fantastic season so far and are sitting second in the league, whilst they come u against a Buckley side in sixth.

Niall McGuiness will want his side firing on all cylinders to keep themselves in the hunt for the title.

Gresford vs Porthmadog

Gresford were unlucky to be defeated by Flint in the Welsh Cup last time out, but will be hoping for a good performance against Porthmadog this week.

Gresford currently sit 10th in the league as they welcome inform side Porthmadog to Clappers Lane. Porthmadog come into this game on the back of a win in the Welsh Cup and they will be looking to continue their good form in the league.

Holywell vs Airbus

Holywell will be looking to build momentum after picking up a massive three points at Holyhead in their last league game, but will be expecting a difficult game against the league leaders.

Airbus come into this game on the back of 9-1 win in the Welsh Cup, and are yet to drop points in the league. They will be hoping for a win to maintain their 12 point lead at the top of the table.

Llanrhaeadr vs Conwy Borough

Llanrhaeadr have waited two weeks for a league game, after they suffered a heavy defeat at Bangor City last time out. They have a chance to put it right when they play Conwy Borough this Saturday.

Gareth Thomas’ side Conwy Borough have gone through a difficult patch, and will have identified this game as a possible game to end that rut.

Penrhyncoch vs Ruthin

Penrhyncoch have had an inconsistent season so far, with the Mid Wales club are currently sitting 12th in the league. Penrhyn have drawn their last two games against Conwy Borough and Holyhead and will be looking to turn those draws into wins starting with Ruthin this weekend.

Ruthin have had an inconsistent season too, in their last league game they beat Gresford but proceeded to be knocked out of the Welsh Cup against Holyhead. A tough game lies ahead for both sides.

Rhyl vs Guilsfield

At the start of the season Rhyl were finding it difficult to pick up wins and now they’re on a roll. They’ve picked up four wins very recently, three wins in the league and one in the Welsh Cup.

However, Guilsfield will prove to be a tough test. The Guils have had a mixed season so far, the Guils are currently 9th in the league and they will be looking to build momentum, but know that Rhyl will be a difficult challenge.
